Since the original edition of this highly successful book was published in 1998 the face of London has changed dramatically, including the construction of the Dome and the London Eye and the opening of the New Tate Gallery. This new edition has been expanded to include glorious images of all of these, by distinguished landscape photographer Dave Paterson. His inspiring photo-essay follows London's river, the Thames, on its historic course past some of the finest buildings and urban landscapes anywhere. The photographs are introduced by well-known writer and broadcaster Julian Critchley, in a wry and witty account of the London where he grew up and its changes over the years.
